Skin cancer, premature aging of the epidermis, burns, the appearance of spots or wrinkles… Some people even wear them on a daily basis (for example in Japan or the United States) because the sun’s rays are very strong, they penetrate clouds or windows. Therefore, you are exposed to it on the bus to work, while walking your dog, or walking in cloudy weather. In short, all the time!

Which SPF filter to choose?

It is often the first thing we pay attention to when choosing ours Sun cream : this spf (Sun Protection Factor) is the sun protection factor for our products. The latter has the ability to protect our skin from the sun’s UV rays: UVA affects the aging of the skin, and UVB can cause sunburn, burns and cancer … There are four categories of sunscreen:

  • Tips weak range from SPF 6 to SPF10.
  • Tips means from SPF 15 to SPF 25.
  • Tips Tops from SPF 30 to SPF 50.
  • Then the tips very tall from SPF 50 to SPF50 +.

And to know which protection is most appropriate, just look in the mirror and observe the color of your skin, eyes and even hair.

  • You have blond hair and one pale skin? You need strong protection to avoid sunburn.
  • Light or dark skin with blonde, auburn or brown hair is a category intermediate leather. Your skin is more sensitive at the beginning of exposure and then adapts to the sun to tan more easily. We recommend using SPF 30 to 50.
  • If you have dark skin, your skin naturally produces a lot of melanin and is protected against UV radiation. You are not prone to sunburn, but SPF 15 to 30 is recommended.

Which sunscreen should I choose for my face?

Therefore, we choose the protection that we will apply after ours day cream. Our heart balances between a moisturizing treatment to choose from Aesopperfect for skin deprived of moisture, or the gel consistency of Invisible Shield at Glossarywhich fits perfectly into our skin care routine.

Sun protection: don’t forget your lips and hair!

Yes, yes, you read it right. In summer, we don’t think about it enough, but the sun’s rays can damage our lips and hair. Their skin contains almost no melanin dye, it is not able to protect itself from light rays. That’s why we choose an anti-UV lip balm for nice moisturizing the lips. When it comes to hair, it’s already overused enough between sand and chlorine to underestimate the effects sun exposure can have on it! We strongly recommend that you invest in protective spray in the form of a mist that cares for them and keeps them beautiful and silky all year round.
